(NaturalNews) Low energy, poor memory and brain fog are common day epidemics. Lowered cognitive function results in lowered working efficiency, relationship disputes and significantly reduced quality of life. Certain compounds, such as CoQ10, borage oil and phosphatydlcholine have the potential to boost brain function naturally.

The brain is extremely sensitive to free radical damage, poor circulation and poor blood sugar balance. Individuals with chronic inflammatory stress, arterial restriction and blood sugar imbalances will have trouble with memory, cognitive function and brain fog.

The brain depends upon specific nutrients in order to function with peak capacity. There are certain nutrients that are challenging to get from our diet and lifestyles. These nutrients can be supplemented with through whole food based sources.

It is also very advantageous to use high-quality nutritional supplements to improve brain function and performance. It is of great benefit to use the most advanced nutritional compounds and strategies to improve performance and quality of life.

CoQ10 improves brain function:

CoQ10 has also been shown to improve brain health and reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches. Additionally, low CoQ10 is linked to degenerative neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's. Supplemental coQ10 has been shown to strengthen the neuronal cell mitochondria and be a potent defense against neurological degeneration (1, 2).

Major studies have demonstrated that CoQ10 reduced oxidation and DNA double-strand breaks. This means that CoQ10 powerfully reduces stress on our DNA which is a key factor for anti-aging. It protects against damage to the arterial lining and keeps blood vessels strong and supple (3).

Borage oil is great for your brain:

Borage oil is loaded with gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which is an anti-inflammatory omega 6 essential fat. GLA is converted into a hormone like substances called prostaglandins that block inflammation. GLA's ability to modulate inflammation makes it very important for reducing pain, improving cardiovascular function and enhancing memory and cognitive processing (4).

Borage oil also contains tannin anti-oxidants that protect the brain and neurons from oxidative stress. The combination of GLA and tannin anti-oxidants improves blood supply into the brain which provides more oxygen and nutrition into this vital structure.

Phosphatidylcholine is a powerful brain enhancing compound:

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a compound that has extraordinary benefits for the brain. It has been shown to have a positive effect on memory, intellectual skills, concentration and the overall health of the brain (5, 6). PC is incorporated into all the neuronal cell membranes and makes up a large part of the volume of the brain cells.

The same lipid structures present in PC are also present in cell membranes throughout the body and especially those in the brain. PC is used in the brain to build and repair new and stronger cell membranes. This improves the integrity of the neuronal membranes and neuron function and communication (7).

PC is also broken down in the brain into choline and sphingomyelin. Sphingomyelin is thought to be essential in the development and preservation of neuronal cells. Choline is a precursor to the major "memory" neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Acetycholine is associated with memory, learning, attention, sensory perception and higher brain activity (8).
